. >> okay, sixuan, thanks for that. >>> it says merging giants. they may not be. defense giants bae and eads have until the end of the day to decide whether they can get together or scrap plans. they'll be locked in talks to the last minute with hints that germany is ready to block a deal, and a spokesman has already confirmed there will be no announcement. william hague spoke about it. >> we've got a good record in recent years in having defense projects, such as the typhoon aircraft with other european countries. but the relationship with the united states, our strategic relationship and technological relationship with the united states is indispensable to us. so, of course, it is necessary for us to be able to continue in both those directions simultaneously. and that's a very important consideration. any such merger of this kind. >> and joining us for more is the director at chatham hasram. they came out against the deal. so that was from a shareholder's point of view. what about from a uk defense point of view? are there political risks in allowing this to go ahead? >> the biggest polit
focused right now on ideas, on the defense of the ideas, bold ideas, as romney articulated last week. he changed the whole narrative. the obama campaign's effort to undermine it by these silly attacks, republicans can't stand young people, they want to kick them off their parents' health care, they want to go after women, the war on women. and now the new option, they're going after big bird, oh, my gosh. it's silly. >> when paul ryan says that the fullest extent of his experience in foreign policy is that he's voted to send people to war, when you've got joe biden whose son not only served for a year but also as a senator from delaware, he's been out there at dover sending troops off, welcoming home those caskets and not to mention he has a foreign policy expert. >> is he really a foreign policy expert? every single position that joe biden has taken on foreign policy issues for his career has been wrong. he has opposed every positive step we've taken in foreign policy. so bring him on when it comes to foreign policy. i hope that he actually does. >> the one thing you haven't mentioned o
of the commercial aviation industry has grown out of defense spending. all of the health care innovation has grown out of the n.i.h. >> in his ten years as ceo, immelt has remade g.e., selling off half the company he inherited, including plastics, insurance, and nbc. >> oh, my god. >> they're selling nbc to a company called kabletown... with a "k." >> at the same time, he has refocused the company on manufacturing, bulking up units like transportation, energy, and research and development. as jobs czar, he's urging his fellow ceos to double their hiring of engineers and devote more money to r&d. at g.e., he's triple-spending on everything from medical research to green technology, including the building of a solar panel factory in the u.s., even as other american solar companies are folding. is this something that's incredibly risky for you? >> in g.e., this is extremely low risk because we have good technology and we have scale. the crime for us is when we don't do things like that. we ought to be percolating 20 $1-billion businesses all the time that can grow inside our system. >> but even while
. the cia, nsa, department of defense, they actually know what these attacks are at the border sometimes and we don't. so business is going to have to work together in this protect the american public so we can stop cyber crime. but it is a big deal, it is going to get worse. computers in ten years are going to be 100,000 times faster and so they'll be able to do calculations quicker and get through quicker. we're going to have to meet that in every way, shape or form. believe me -- banks i think are pretty good at this. we've been doing this a long time and there are rules and regulations and -- but we have to really stay in front of it. how many of you are worried about that? don't think of just the cyber security coming over the internet to you. like everything we do, we do authenticate you. we know more about that stuff than some you think. think about the person that joins your company from inside. that's where you're going to get it. >> thank you for that re-assuring point. there is a young lady in the second to last row -- >> create internal fire walls is how you protect yourself
it as a defense business that pays a nice dividend. spanish slightly high. also had a tea bill auction out of italy today. for the first time in a while, yields were slightly high on the three-month. the 12-month yields, 1.94 from previously just under 1.7 in september. slightly higher auction yields for italy in the tea bill area. that's where we stand. some pretty low volume -- kind of waiting day, i'll put it like that. we'll wait to see what you guys get up to. but for now, back to you. >> okay, 00-ross, thank you. i read this a couple times. the obama campaign and supporters, including big wigs like david axelrod and robert gibbs along with several cable tv anchors. >> i think you know who -- ali has been tweeting. >> i doubt if that's andrew. >> would like you to believe that the bls -- that the data is handled like gold in fort knox, gun carrying guards watching their every move. highly trained white gloved super agents counting and recounting each number. when in fact, there are 60,000 households that these census workers call on the phone, try to get a hold of them over a one-week
with the expert-driven economy, construction economy, companies such as 3m. a little more defensive there. >> lee, if, in fact, we're talking about slowdown in production but a rise in consumption in china, why would you buy caterpillar right now? >> well, first of all, i think we have to remember you look at a yum brand that has 40, 45% of their earnings coming from china. caterpillar has a very low amount of earnings directly from china. everybody on the street agrees that caterpillar moves with our expectation of how good china will grow. but caterpillar is just starting that growth stage versus yum. it already has so much riding on the chinese economy. the other guest, i hear you. if you think that deceleration is not going to be a problem, that's fine. i would rather go with a company that has a game to win versus a game to lose. yum is extremely dependent. that company structure is dependent on china working out. i wouldn't necessarily disagree or agree with having that stock. but caterpillar has much less of their actual earnings coming from that middle kingdom. so if we have a hard landin
. on a smaller cap site, itt, which is a spinout. about a year ago they spun out their defense and water business. i think the management is very shareholder driven. the yield is compelling, and they're going to grow the yield. another name that looks compelling to me is the housing market continues to improve. lowe's, very shareholder driven. valuation at a discount to home depot. i think there's a couple ideas. >> itt as a small cap. harold jeanine is spinning in a grave somewhere. if you don't know who he is, look him up. >> i was going to ask dan the same question. what with would you do? >> i think ben bernanke is telling you you have to move out on the risk curve. two stocks we like, the gwr in the new york stock exchange. just fantastic long-term record. made what probably will be looked at as one of the most important strategic moves by buying rail america. very, very high-quality asset. the other company we like a lot is mtw, maker of trains and other industrial food service equipment. company just raised money in the high-yield bond market at 5 7/8 for a ten-year term. not so high yield
the actual chicago bears kept scoring touchdowns with the defense. i tell myself it's early, that there will be more countervailing news. sure enough, there is. walmart is holding a big rah-rah meeting and their reports are outstanding. the stock climbs and climbs. considering this is the world's largest ooeld retailer, i'm aawarding the bears 7. there is hope! plus apple, which has been an anvil around the neck of the bulls. suddenly has pep in its step. it doesn't open down. it doesn't stay down. you got to give the bulls, let's give them a field goal, one of the david akers 62 jobs. and now it's an 11-point game. admittedly negative 11, but not the end of the world. for the purposes of explanation, i'm going to shift sports entirely, just for a nanosecond, and talk about, you bet, bowling. hey, dialing for dollars. come on, i'm trying to get you involved. you see the great numbers from costco and yum and walmart. they were all in the retail sector, every one of them. all that did is to serve something we already knew, that the consumer is still spending courtesy of the we
